The varied backgrounds of the Fetch team combine to make a unique collection of skills. From painter to entrepreneur to architect, our experiences and aesthetics help us create beautiful glasses that stand the test of time. See what each of us brings to the table.
Ann Sacks founded Fetch Eyewear (originally Amy Sacks Eyewear) in 2004 shortly after retiring from the company that she built from the ground up, Ann Sacks Tile and Stone. With a keen eye for design, years of business and sourcing experience, and a life long passion for animal rescue, Ann was able to put her skills to use to provide affordable stylish frames to her customers and an ongoing funding source for local animal rescue, the Pixie Project. The defacto head of our quality control department, each Fetch frame must survive her tough love approach to glasses.
Jill found a home at Fetch that combines her optical chops with her eye for shape and structure. Educated as an architect and trained as an optician, she's been known to obsess over half millimeters when perfecting a frame design. Tasked with sourcing our colorful acetates, she can procure perfection given even the vaguest description. She thrills in finding the perfect Fetch frame for each customer and has a wall of fame to prove it. A naturalized Portlander, she reveals her Midwest roots with continued use of the word supper.
New to the world of eyewear, Kristen has taken to awkwardly staring at strangers in the glasses and bringing up the finer points of acetates or hinges or bridges in basically any social situation. After studying photography in the windy city, Kristen journeyed to Portland where she worked with some swell Portland designers before landing at Fetch. Kristen brings her love of the Oregon landscape, animals, strong coffee, fashion, and visual arts to all things Fetch. Kristen loves nothing more than to show off the fantastic frames and fabulous office dogs at Fetch Eyewear.
